September will slowly start to wrap up and fall has seemed like a distant, almost achievable goal at times after another long summer.

While Thursday’s forecast certainly won’t help with that feeling, it’s expected to be hot and humid, but there are some signs that change is coming.

Before we get to that change though we’ve got another afternoon with highs sitting in the low 90s, and a heat index that will hover right around the 100-degree mark.

There will be a spotty shower or two in the afternoon, most of them will pop up along the coastline and south Acadiana has a slightly higher chance to see that rain.

Thursday will be the last dry day we get for a little while as rain chances ramp up on Friday with widely scattered showers and storms.

Once this rainfall gets going the moisture gets stuck in and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon with a wet week coming up next week.

The rain will be on again/off again so not expecting any heavy flooding and rain totals should remain fairly reasonable.
